Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
If a webmaster is running sites that are 100% compliant under the google TOS, and its still fairly easy to get them banned from the adsense program via bullshit reporting, then thats a flaw with google that can have a very real impact on peoples lives.I haven't. All the ones I know about were breaking the TOS in one way or another.
Ive seen plenty of webmasters lives literally destroyed by getting banned from adsense, who were completely dependent on adsense for their families income. You can claim that is dumb, but that just adds evidence to the fact that googles program is flawed.
The warnings I have received are simply mind boggling. I showed a team of my people the pic we got flagged for and jaws hit the floor with murmurings of "you gotta be kidding me?!?!?" I wont even allow a picture of a fully clothed woman on my sites now, its gotten so ridiculous. However wants me banned is a playing a numbers game. They know that if they report enough pics, and hit the right google employee on a bad day, they will eventually get me.I take it that you are the photographer of these pics, or the person who took them works for you. Or are they really, really, copyright free?

This is complete nonsense based on pure ignorance. They contains none of the above. How could you possibly know?
Please stop making up pure nonsense.
The problem is, if you want to go big, I mean really big, lets say you have so many users that you expect a million pictures a year to get uploaded, you are screwed.Sounds to me that you are talking about a site where users upload images.
Some greedy attorneys are going to latch onto this and file a class action lawsuit some day and they will have ample evidence of googles hypocrisy an unfair practices.
No, its dumb because its obviously dumb. For every site that got googles secret "blessed" status,You mean the ones that follow the TOS?
how many got blown out of the water for some stupid random reason? I wager plenty.Actually, none. There have never been a random reason. I do think they should give warnings about certain things, and if an on-page violation, to give a proper example.
I could create a far superior, but similar model to theirs quite easily.You won't last long. There would be so many lawsuits filed against you from advertisers for not doing enough for fraud. Good luck with that.
You say that without even knowing what my model would be?
You cant have any basis to make such a claim. Your claim is made on the false assumption that my model wouldnt take fraud into consideration.
Pretty much everyone here agrees that relying on adsense as a source of revenue for your life is a dumb idea.
Why is that? Does that not prove beyond any doubt that their model is totally flawed? I think it obviously does.
That is not the case with my sites. They are squeaky clean.That's not always been the case, has it? And what about copyrighted material?
I can pick any of my competitors, and find violations within a minute, easily.
You may have to look for hours to find something even borderline on my sites.I very much doubt that. Didn't you say that users upload images?
I havent been flagged for a warning in forever, considering how many sites and the size of them.Actually, it was around June 2011 that you had a reported violation. Let me remind you... [webmasterworld.com...]
Let me put it this way, right now im looking at a snorgtee's advertisement with a young girl in underwear with what might be a little bit of cameltoe showing.Giggity.
Meanwhile, my competitors that have all this actual adult content, are getting tons of traffic from it, putting me at a huge disadvantage...
...because I follow the rules to a T.Sure.
